If I told you that I had 25 pounds of apples would you believe me? Of course you would. If you have been reading this blog long enough, you know that I have a love affair with seizing opportunities to purchase fresh seasonal bounty in bulk. My problem is always after that peak experience of buying, and my romantic notions of the possibilities, not to mention a few eye rolls from my husband, is the reality that I have 25 pounds of apples.
With my apples, and new fire red apple peeler in hand, I managed to preserve several quarts of homemade apple sauce and apple butter, and lastly apple pecan cobbler.
This is only an illusion my friends. The first piece was done politely, the rest I ate handily right out of the pan.
